LOW IDLE AND STALLING

1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

my 16 year old son has a 1997 Mitsi Eclipse. Cool car but frustrating because we know nothing about repairs. Spent SEVERAL hundred dollars maiking repairs when we bought it so I thought it would be in good running order. Now it's starting rough, idling low, and stalling at each stop if his foot is not on the gas and break and same time. Shop said they hosed down the engine before I picked it up and water got into the plug wires, They dried them out and it ran OK for a few days. Then they replaced the plug wires. Again, it ran OK for a few days. Then spark plugs were replaced. We are still having the same problem. Runs OK some of the time, other times it is stalling and hardly running.

Have the idle air control motor/throttle position sensor and EGR valve checked out-
